Blake2 is a cryptographic hash function designed to be more secure than SHA-3 and faster than MD5, SHA-1, and SHA-2 released on January 13, 2013.

BLAKE2 is a cryptographic hash function designed to be more secure than SHA-3 and faster than MD5, SHA-1, and SHA-2 released on January 13, 2013. BLAKE2 is made to be used in cloud storage, intrusion detection, and version control systems. BLAKE2 algorithms are 32% faster than BLAKE cryptographic hash algorithms. There are two different forms of the Blake2 cryptographic hash function: BLAKE2b (optimized for 64-bit performance) and BLAKE2s (optimized for smaller software architectures).
